Director Jerry Mitchell shared that when directing the show, it was very important for him to capture the special connection between the Estefans. He said, “It was all the things I didn’t know about Gloria and Emilio that I wanted to put in the show,” he said. “Their partnership displayed itself every day, in every way, down to eating lunch. It was obvious how they took care of each other, how they were there for each other after all these years together, and that was exciting. They have such a strong sense of family, and I wanted to bring out that family dynamic. It made me think a lot about my own family, and how everyone has someone in their family who is the most supportive and someone who is the least supportive. That was part of the story that we were trying to wrap our heads around.”
“Rooted in the kind of warmth and sincerity that marks the reputation of their subject” – Chicago Tribune
